Challenge Battery Charges with Confidence

While assault and battery charges are often coupled together, they are actually two separate violent crimes with different meanings. In the state of California, a battery charge is considered the more serious of the two since it is the criminal act that actually inflicts an injury on a victim.

People charged with battery could be penalized by:

  • High fines
  • Time behind bars
  • Child custody removal
  • Lengthy probation

WHAT DOES BATTERY MEAN EXACTLY?

A battery charge covers the willful action of violence against another person that actually caused them physical harm, while assault charges stem from when someone who tries to cause harm or threatens harm but never actually does it; either these can also be categorized as domestic violence.

Battery is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of $2,000 in low-level misdemeanor cases. Aggravated battery includes violence that led to serious bodily injury to another. This can be punishable by up to one year in jail if charged as a misdemeanor and up to four years in prison with $10,000 in fines if it is a felony.

When a deadly weapon is involved, the crime can be considered a felony. The penalties for this escalated form of battery may include up to four years in prison, confiscation of weapons, community service, restitution to the victim, and $10,000 in fines.
